The exhibition of Anders Zorn at the Gardner Museum in Boston ends in just two days, on May 13. The show includes twenty-four paintings and twenty-two drawings, in addition to photographs and letters.
I went to see the show with a group of artist friends last week, and we were intrigued with several variations on a theme of passengers riding an omnibus.
In one version, a young woman sits with her left hand clutching the string of a box as her fellow passengers doze or gaze out the windows. Outside it’s a blur of action. Two contrasting light sources flood into the interior from the left and right.
